William Shakespeare :
The Prince but studies his companions Like a strange tongue, wherein, to gain the language, 'Tis needful that the most immodest word Be looked upon and learnt, which once attained, Your highness knows, comes to no further use But to be known and hated.
[William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Warwick, in Henry IV, Part 2, act 4, sc. 4, l. 69-73. On Prince Hal as using Falstaff and others for his education.]
Sarah B Askew :
If you have ever watched an artist constructing with bits of cold stone a beautiful living picture you know that he works faithfully and carefully on the pattern from the wrong side and while he is working every inequality, every tint a little too dull is apparent to him as his picture grows, but he works on and on. And even when he finishes at last and looks down at the completed pattern he is not discouraged to see here a little crevice and there a little roughness, an open seam here, a tiny patch there where the bit of marble was too small. Now he pours his cement over it and smoothes [sic] it into every seam, and with faith puts his work to dry. Next day the pattern is turned and the perfect whole is given to view, needing only the polishing of a loving hand to make it ready to slip in place. So we should work faithfully on our pattern, cement it together with ourselves, and polish it with human kindness; and lo! the work slips into place seemingly a perfect whole.
[Sarah B. Askew, U.S. librarian. The Place, the Man and the Book (1916). Likening a mosaic artist's work to that of a librarian choosing the books for a library collection.]

Jorge Luis Borges :
It is known that Whistler when asked how long it took him to paint one of his "nocturnes" answered: "All of my life." With the same rigor he could have said that all of the centuries that preceded the moment when he painted were necessary. From that correct application of the law of causality it follows that the slightest event presupposes the inconceivable universe and, conversely, that the universe needs even the slightest of events.
[Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), Argentinian author. "Gauchesque Poetry" ["La poesía gauchesca"], Discussion [Discusión] (1932).]

Jeanne Elium :
Somehow we have been taught to believe that the experiences of girls and women are not important in the study and understanding of human behavior. If we know men, then we know all of humankind. These prevalent cultural attitudes totally deny the uniqueness of the female experience, limiting the development of girls and women and depriving a needy world of the gifts, talents, and resources our daughters have to offer.
[Jeanne Elium (20th century), U.S. writer and educator, and Elium (20th century), U.S. family counselor and author. Raising a Daughter, ch. 4 (1994).]

Mary Wollstonecraft :
Women are told from their infancy, and taught by the example of their mothers, that a little knowledge of human weakness, justly termed cunning, softness of temper, outward obedience, and a scrupulous attention to a puerile kind of propriety, will obtain for them the protection of man; and should they be beautiful, every thing else is needless, for, at least, twenty years of their lives.
[Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), British feminist. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, ch. 2 (1792).]

Martin Buber :
Socratic man believes that all virtue is cognition, and that all that is needed to do what is right is to know what is right. This does not hold for Mosaic man who is informed with the profound experience that cognition is never enough, that the deepest part of him must be seized by the teachings, that for realization to take place his elemental totality must submit to the spirit as clay to the potter.
[Martin Buber (1878-1965), Austrian-born Jewish philosopher. Israel and the World: Essays in a Time of Crisis, Schocken (1948).]
May Hobbs :
The people needed to be rehoused, but I feel disgusted and depressed when I see how they have done it. It did not suit the planners to think how they might deal with the community, or the individuals that made up the community. All they could think was, "Sweep it away!" The bureaucrats put their heads together, and if anyone had told them, "A community is people," they would not have known what they were on about.
[May Hobbs (b. 1938), British author. Born to Struggle, "Prelude," (1973). Of the way the government had implemented "slum clearance" in her childhood neighborhood in London's East End.]

James Boswell :
Why should not the knowledge, the skill, the expertness, the assiduity, and the spirited hazards of trade and commerce, when crowned with success, be entitled to give those flattering distinctions by which mankind are so universally captivated? Such are the specious, but false arguments for a proposition which always will find numerous advocates, in a nation where men are every day starting up from obscurity to wealth. To refute them is needless. The general sense of mankind cries out, with irresistible force, "Un gentilhomme est toujours gentilhomme."
[James Boswell (1740-1795), Scottish author. (Originally published 1791). Life of Johnson, "July 1765," pp. 348-49, Oxford University Press (1980).]

Ben Hecht :
Managing Editor: That's rotten. 'Costello slaying starts gang war.' That's what I want. Copy Chief: I'm working on that angle. I've got four men on it. Managing Editor: Four. You'll need forty men on this story for the next five years. You know what's happening. This town is up for the grabs, get me. You know Costello was the last of the old- fashioned gang leaders. There's a new crew coming out, and every guy that's got money enough to buy a gun is going to try to step in his place. You see, they'll be shooting each other like rabbits for the control of the booze business. You get it. It'll be just like war. That's it—war. You put that in the lead. War—gang war.
[Ben Hecht (1893-1964), U.S. screenwriter, Seton I. Miller, screenwriter, John Lee Mahin, screenwriter, and W.R. Burnett, screenwriter. Managing Editor (Tully Marshall), Copy Chief (uncredited), Scarface, demanding stronger newspaper coverage of the city's impending gang wars (1932). Additional author Howard Hawks.]
